Free Sleigh Bells for Kontakt                                      15th November 2013

Sonokinetic has announced the release of Sleigh Bells, a free virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Q: What does every Christmas track need but has been sadly overlooked by most sample developers?
A: Sleigh Bells

Q: What are Sonokinetic going to do about it?
A: Program a ridiculously comprehensive collection of tempo-synced sleigh bells and give it to you for FREE as an extra special xmas gift.

Sonokinetic brings you this treat, free for anyone to enjoy, but no less powerful than our paid-for libraries. We figured it’s a time for giving presents, and we wanted to thank all of you for the 5 years you kept Sonokinetic going strong, and growing to the company it is today…Thank You!

So for this special package, we donned our comedy Santa hats and recorded 6 different sizes of sleigh bells, ranging from just one bell to a 25 bell stick. The samples were captured using apogee hardware and a violet audio flamingo stereo microphone.

We’re providing loops in two tempi. Using Kontakt’s Time Machine function and our in-house developed ITM (Intelligent Tempo Mapping) the loops will adapt to your carol seamlessly. We have captured two meters (3/4 and 4/4) and two feels… straight(ish) called ‘trot’ and a shuffle-feel ‘gallop’ which Rudolph tells us keeps him in perfect sync with the other reindeer.

We’ve also captured a sleigh full of single hits, to create a set of round robins for maximum realism… that’s between 23 and 41 different hits per instrument.

The interface is themed around an advent calendar (what else?!) You can open doors by either clicking them, or playing any of the keys associated with that door. The numbers refer to the number of bells of that particular sleigh bell, and in number 0 there is a general options field.

Did we mention it’s free?
